My wife Gabi and I are both Australians from Sydney's Northern Beaches but Gabi is of German/ Russian heritage and I'm descended from the convicts. Gabi is a primary school teacher and I'm a sales manager with a hydraulic company. We have two children a son and a daughter who are mid twenties. I'm a surfer who loves my rugby but I appreciate NFL. I'm also hoping to book a baseball game at Yankee Stadium while we're there.
